Bug#569784: debootstrap: cannot build a clean Lenny chroot anymore
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Today, while trying to build a clean Lenny chroot using pbuilder, I noticed that
debootstrap complained of failure to configure packages, mentioning that it will
try 5 times before completely giving up.
Instead, what happens is that the host becomes unresponsive and has to be force-
rebooted (ACPI reset button).
So, this bug is two-fold:
1) no longer able to build a Lenny chroot (I tried with and without adding the
security updates repository, in /etc/pbuilderrc - fails in both cases).
2) failure to configure the base system and trying 5 more times pulls an insane
amount of system resources that brings the build host to its knees.
While I realize that Squeeze is getting closer to a release, it's still necessary
to be able to create Lenny chroots e.g. to build backports and security releases,
so I can only hope that the Debian-boot team can fix this.
